What do our volunteers do?

Volunteers are the life blood of our organisation without whom we could not operate in the way we do or so successfully. Many volunteers are local residents and a significant number have become volunteers after completing one of our practical cooking courses and come from a wide range of backgrounds.

There are four main groups of activities that volunteers can participate in:

  • Bagging ingredients for cooking lessons
  • Assisting with cooking lessons
  • Promotional activities
  • Cooking demonstrations

No special skills are needed for any of the above activities and Bags of Taste will provide information/training or a mentor to help you undertake them. It’s flexible and doesn’t have to be a regular commitment.
